The Cotswold Craftsmen Gallery (Est. April 2005) is located on Market Street in the picturesque town of Nailsworth, in the heart of the Cotswolds. A small town with unique independent shops and cafes. The gallery is invigilated by the makers that have their work on display, and occasionally demonstrate their craft skills, welcoming visitors to browse and to chat about their work.
Our upstairs (ground floor) gallery permanently shows a fabulous selection of work from some of our members. Work changes regularly so it’s always worth revisiting the gallery to see what’s new and you will find the gallery brimming with work to inspire and delight.
See below for details of which members are now at the gallery or see our Exhibitions page for further information on current displays.)
In 2008, the gallery was extended to include a new downstairs gallery where the work of landscape artist Nick Handover is on permanent display.
Alongside this beautiful collection, there is a wide range of changing of Art works and crafts by other local artists. So even more work to see!
